We came here in 2015 and had to come back in 2016. In 2015, it was much busier and we had a long wait. This year, we were there by 4:30 and was served quickly. I'd rather go later in the night because it's so busy and more seems to be happening.

Wonderful Manicotti and the chicken too😎. Don't judge by the outside. FYI cash and check only. There is a shuttle because parking is at a premium. Service was very quick and they did have a live band.

They only gave 5 or 6 meals to order from and all are excellent. Down home cooking and soooo good! It does get crowded so try to get there early. They also have live music. It does get noisy in there but their dishes are really good and the music is good too!

A funky time at Grayton Beach area. The Red Bar is usually busy so we came early. No problems getting seats at 430 PM. The usual anytime we are in the area. Crab cakes on Saturday night and a little music that starts at 530.

The Red Bar is always on our list when we visit 30A. We love it that the menu constantly changes. It's also a great place to catch some live music.

I had heard so many good things about this place, so drove over from Panama City. It was not worth the drive. I went for lunch. There was no wait, they had just opened. There was a strange smell in the place that didn't go away. Kind of like old grease. I had the Paneed Chicken sandwich. It may just... More

Loved the grouper! My favorite was the smoked tuna appetizer. The service was great! Only reservation was it is cash or check but we were aware of that before going. I recommend trying!!

This part of Florida has grown explosively and almost swallowed up the Red Bar. Funny, it seems venerable now, but it's not really that old. When I visited 19 years ago it was fairly new, really kind of a reproduction of 'Old Florida', and sitting all alone out there on the highway with very few neighbors, you could stroll in... More

Had another wonderful meal at The Red Bar. Food always delicious and entertainment great! just be prepared for a wait and normally longer than they say. If your first time have cash or a check they don't take cards.

On our final night in SRB, we opted to try the Red Bar, a "must do" from locals. Keep in mind that locals want you to stay local and in this case, you need to follow their recommendation. There is a limited, pre-set menu that at first thought is restrictive but in their case it allows them to do best... More
